If anyone is even keeping track of Vista's release anymore, congrats

Recent news has hinted at yet more delays in Microsoft's Vista launch in January of 2007. If anyone actually believed that Vista would be released at that time they obviously did not follow Microsoft's previous delays of the upcoming operating system.

As Ballmer himself states "Certainly, when Windows Vista comes to the market next year, and it will be next year, we will make sure that we make a high quality product, ship a high quality product, when it's ready."

The last few words, "when it's ready" are reminiscent of the old Duke Nukem Forever days but hopefully it won't take Microsoft as long to release the final versions. Ballmer went on to later add
"What we are discussing ... with hardware partners is when they would really like it -- early January, late January, February. We are on track for shipping early in the year."

Last week Microsoft announced official hardware requirements to run Vista which give us something to hold on to and plan with for migrating our environments to Vista...eventually. The requirements seem very high compared to those of our current beloved Microsoft operating systems but at the rate hardware is advancing these base requirements will probably be standard at the time Vista is launched.
